New Zealand vs Pakistan: Kiwi's all set to tour Pakistan after 18 years

New Zealand vs Pakistan series has officially been approved to be held in Pakistan after 18 years, after a pre-tour security check by its independent security consultant, Reg Dickason.

According to New Zealand media reports, Kiwi Cricket has shown satisfaction with the report of its security expert and captain Tom Latham in a statement from Dhaka said that he believes in Rig Dickason’s report.

Tom said, “Someone like Reg, he’s been around a long time, and he’s worked with New Zealand Cricket for a long time. We here have full trust in what he does for New Zealand Cricket and the processes and regulations that they put in place,”

“Our focus at this stage is on Bangladesh, but our focus will turn to Pakistan once this series is done,”

Finally, New Zealand is all set to visit Pakistan through a chartered plane on 11th September, the day after they end their Twenty20 series in Bangladesh.

New Zealand and Pakistan will play 3 ODIs in Rawalpindi and 5 Twenty20s in Lahore with the tour ending up on 3rd October.

The New Zealand tour of Pakistan in 2002 was cut short after a bomb blasted outside their hotel in Karachi on the first morning of the 2nd test. They went back to play ODIs the following year, without incident, but have returned since.
